Exploring Laos

Common Texture

Common Texture was out on the road again last week scouting for handicraft gems. This time we went on a whirlwind tour of the Luang Prabang Province in Laos. Many types of hand-looming examples can be found here, specifically using an indigo dye in hand spun cotton.

The master weavers use textiles to tell their living history, stories that would not be passed on if it wasn't for these depicted weaves. When purchasing a piece of woven art in Laos, don't get bogged down in the technical details, choose a composition that speaks to your heart, find out about the weaver and how long it took to produce. If you are going to hang it, you can also find the special wooden wall holders to display the master piece you have chosen in your home. If you approach the intricate fabrics like choosing art, you can't go wrong. Having a tale to tell of that fabulous journey into the lush green hills of Luang Prabang. Let's see what we find next.
